About this listing

***PLEASE FILL OUT YOUR PROFILE AND UPLOAD A PICTURE BEFORE CONTACTING ME. I also prefer that you message me before booking. :) ***
Stay in one of the newest and nicest waterfront neighborhoods in downtown Vancouver - steps to the seawall, restaurants and shopping.
I am renting my spare bedroom to visitors who don't mind sharing my place (1050 sq ft). I am friendly, a good host and more than happy to help you with travel tips during your stay in Vancouver.
You would have your own bedroom fitted with a queen bed and 500 thread count sheets, bathroom, and full use of the kitchen, living room, dining room, a 40" LED TV with HD channels, Apple TV, Netflix, and Blu-ray player.
As of Nov 2012, I've replaced all my appliances with brand new ones: a bottom mount fridge with french doors, super quiet LG dishwasher (48 db), Samsung washer and dryer with steam functions.
Wireless internet is included and so are free calls throughout North America.
You also have access to our lap pool, gym, squash court, theatre and billiards room inside our building.
No pets. Smoking allowed on balcony only. Please tell me a little bit about yourself.
Building is conveniently located near Yaletown skytrain station. That means you can take the train here from the airport. Vancouver downtown is also small enough that you can walk everywhere. You don't need a car but if you have one, I do have a dedicated parking stall downstairs.
Kitchen, living room, dining room and the building's amenities (pool, squash court, gym), parking.
Interaction with Guests
As much as they want.
Next to George Wainborn Park, you have immediate access to green space as well as the waterfront (seawall). But you're also two blocks away from the best restaurants and night life.
All the main bus lines are just two blocks away. The Skytrain (Canada Line) is also within walking distance.
No partying or overnight guests.
You're welcome to use the shared space - living room, dining room, kitchen, etc. There are great amenities too in the building.
Noise should be kept to a minimum after 10pm.
My wife and I stayed with Charles for a few days. The apartment was as advertised and it was perfect. Location is excellent. Great views from the room and even better views in the living area. The entire apartment was very clean. Great shower. Very comfy bed with clean, soft sheets. Charles is super nice, very hospitable, a really great guy and gave us some helpful tips for our first trip to Vancouver. I highly recommend his place and we would definitely stay there again.
Charles was a good and responsible host-- he made sure that my boyfriend and I made the proper preparations on how to get to his house before getting into Vancouver (which was particularly helpful because I didn't have international data after crossing the border). His place was also BEAUTIFUL in a great part of Vancouver with a great view. The room and bathroom were clean comfy--- just what we needed. He had great recommendations for what to do in the city, and we were able to do a big majority of them :) Charles' place was also great because we were able to walk and/or bike to places like Stanley Park and Granville Island very easily. Definitely worth staying, and wouldn't hesitate to book again when I'm in Vancouver. :) Thanks, Charles!!!
We thought that Charles's apartment was ideal for our stay in Vancouver. The location is excellent, room was very comfortable with its private bathroom and the views from the whole place are great. Charles made us feel very welcome and he was very helpful.
We had a fantastic time staying with Charles! He has a beautiful and comfortable condo that was spotlessly clean and with lovely views of the water and the city. It's in a great location for exploring downtown and Granville Island and is within walking distance to many great restaurants in Yaletown. We also greatly appreciated the free parking space for our rental car and the opportunity to use the washing machine after having been traveling for a bit. Charles was very friendly and helpful with suggestions around town and we really enjoyed getting to chat with him and learn more about his interesting work.
Great experience, loved the condo and would definitely recommend!
Stayed with Charles for 2 nights. He was very accommodating and the apartment was beautiful! Very comfortable bed. Would happily stay again :)
Charles was a great host and his flat was amazing, with views over the water, well furnished, and a great breeze throughout the flat. The room itself is very clean, and the bed was very comfortable with nice linens. You also get your own bathroom, which is great.
I would definitely recommend the flat!
